For one weekend in March, Miracle Mile, the stylish main street of Coral Gables, comes alive with a non-stop celebration of Greater Miami & Miami Beach’s Latin and Caribbean culture. Part of the destination’s three-week Carnaval Miami fête, Carnaval on the Mile is a festive, family-friendly event that welcomes people of all ages to enjoy live music, local art and delicious food.

What to Expect at Carnaval on the Mile 2022

Make plans to head to Coral Gables March 5 & 6, 2022 to experience this entertaining event. At each end of Miracle Mile, two large stages will feature everything from jazz, funk and rock music (past performers include Chris Cab, Palo! and Locos Por Juana) to fun, interactive children’s shows.

The core of the festival centers around Carnaval on the Mile’s popular Artist Village, where visitors will find more than 200 artists selling their crafts, jewelry, paintings, sculpture and photography.

When you need a break to refuel, you can stop at one of the food and drink vendors lining Miracle Mile, and try everything from Cuban to Caribbean fare. For a longer break, dine at one of Coral Gables’ many delicious restaurants.

A Larger Cultural Celebration: Carnaval Miami

As popular as Carnaval on the Mile is, it’s actually a small part of a much larger celebration of Hispanic culture called Carnaval Miami. From February 26 to March 13, 2022, this multi-event festival includes the annual Miss Carnaval Miami pageant (where young women can compete for the revered title of “Miss Carnaval”) as well as golf and soccer tournaments, a 10K run, a cooking contest, a domino tournament and the world-renowned Calle Ocho Music Festival, which fills 20 blocks of Little Havana with multiple stages hosting live merengue, reggaeton, bachata, hip-hop, rap, jazz and more.

Tips for Enjoying Carnaval on the Mile

This is an outdoor event, so wear comfortable clothing and good walking shoes. (And don’t forget the sunscreen!)

Be sure you have cash on hand for vendors who don’t accept credit cards.
